Product Description

Poesy Complexion & Linen Mist

A pretty poesy for your pretty face! Sweet rose & lavender with herbaceous rose geranium to soothe & hydrate stressed winter skin...

I was lucky enough to procure a trio of gorgeous hydrosols, or flower waters, from one of my favorite vendors over the holiday, & I'm sharing them! Hydrosols are the liquids leftover from the distillation of essential oils - they retain the original botanical's scent & properties, but in very mild concentrations, making them ideal for applying directly to the skin. I use my hydrosol blend every morning, misting it over my face before applying my moisturizer. This helps add a little oomf to my moisturizer, & feels so good on winter-parched skin. It's lovely, too, in the summer, as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up! You can also mist it over your sheets & lace-edged handkerchiefs, if you're feeling particularly Edwardian... "Poesy" is a lovely old word for poetry, after all.

I selected a range of balancing, soothing hydrosols for this blend, those that benefit all skin types. I did aim for a blend that's particularly helpful for problematic, um, "middle-age" skin. You know, that glorious combination of acne & wrinkles that pops up in your 30s? Yeah, that nonsense :/ *Please note that Poesy contains NO PRESERVATIVES. Keep your bottle away from extreme temperatures, & use it up within 3 months of purchase.* To use, mist gently over face & neck, taking care to close your eyes & mouth. Hydrosols are very mild, but please discontinue use if you experience any irritation. And don't drink Poesy, no matter how tempting.

This listing is for a pretty 2 ounce mister bottle of preservative-free floral hydrosols. It's paraben-free, -cone-free, & contains no propylene glycol, mineral oil, or synthetic fragrances. Poesy is blended in small batches & packaged in recyclable bottles with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind: Rosa damascene (Rose), Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) & Pelargonum graveolens (Rose Geranium) Hydrosols

    - make my pillow a sleep-inducing cloud
    - perk up my skin
    - balance the feeling of moisture/dryness in my face
    - freshen hair
    - work as a toner
    - vaguely mist fresh laundry for added pleasant scent without the problems dryer sheets provide
    - refresh
    - hydrate
    - slip luxuriously over the skin

  2. A lovely moisture boost

    Poesy is very gentle, has a subtle, lovely fragrance, and does indeed give your moisturizer a little extra oomf! It's also great to give yourself a nice, cooling spritz on a hot summer day.
